NH Mikva Challenge Project Soapbox

Project Soapbox  is a public speaking initiative put on by Mikva Challenge in partnership with the NH Institute for Civics Education, that calls on young people to develop and deliver an original speech on an issue that matters to them. These powerful speeches have lasting, transformative impacts on classrooms, schools, and communities. Students come from across the state in Gorham, Groveton, Littleton, Pittsfield, Weare, and Henniker. 

This winter, students will deliver speeches that answer the question:

"What is the biggest issue facing your community, and what should be done about it?”

First, students will give their speech in their classrooms. On Tuesday, March 9th, we will host a culminating state-wide virtual mainstage showcase for the 10 outstanding speakers who were chosen to advance.

We would be honored if you would consider joining us as a guest. 

Thank you for supporting students and encouraging their development as engaged, thoughtful citizens and community leaders!

Our programs in action!

A large portion of my day is spent on video calls helping parents to teach their kids the right material. Because of all that I’m constantly looking for great online resources to share with the parents of the kids I work with and I came across your NH Civics page while looking up social studies resources. It’s been a great help and had a lot of great sites I could send the kids and their parents to for some extra material to work with. Just thought I should reach out and thank you for putting it all together!
